Fortunately, it was not a T4WD!

It's certainly not safe for highway driving so it IS crazy. If/when it busted loose the car would be all over the highway, endangering others. It's not even a good quality 2x4. It would be OK only for a parts car that stays parked.

Looks like a good way to get hurt.
